Basic Cold Process Soap Making 101

My original 101 Soap Making Class! This is a beginner-level course.

I'll teach you how to make soap from scratch at home as a hobby. Have fun while learning completely hands-on. The objective is to understand saponification values and be comfortable calculating and formulating your own soap recipes at home. You'll make real cold process soap from scratch during the class session and get to take it home. Students also take home a soap mold, a 2lb bottle of sodium hydroxide and handouts, which include step-by-step instruction, resources, and recipes to help you continue at home.

Topics: Safety, Equipment & Supplies, Saponification Values, Oil Properties, Recipe Formulation, Molds, Cutting and Curing, supplier links, Troubleshooting.

Bring to class: Calculator, pen/pencil and safety goggles, wear a long sleeve shirt, closed-toe shoes, and wear clothes you don’t mind getting messy.

Milk Soap Making

Prerequisite: This class is intended as a second-level course. Students should know the basics of cold process soap making. At a minimum, the student should be familiar with procedures, equipment, and safety or have taken my Cold Process Soap Making 101 Class.

This soap making class is designed to teach students to make milk soap from scratch at home as a hobby. Have fun while learning completely hands-on. Students make cold process milk soap during the class session and get to take it home. Students also take-home handouts, which include step-by-step instruction, and recipes to help you continue at home.

Topics include: Special considerations and safety concerns for making milk soap and how to control effects through various soap-making techniques. We will cover three ways of making milk soap.

Liquid Hot Process Soap Making

Pre-requisite: Soap Making 101 class OR if you are already a cold/hot processed soap maker that's okay, too. If you only have melt-and-pour experience you may struggle with some of the concepts. Contact me if you have any questions!

Due to the nature of hot processed soap making and the equipment required, this is being given as a demo class but there will also be some hands-on "make and take" at the end.

Bring to class: Calculator, pen/pencil and safety goggles, wear a long sleeve shirt, closed-toe shoes, and wear clothes you don’t mind getting messy.
